Mixed feelings about life in the U.S. filter through this drama featuring Adolfo (Armando Gutierrez), a young Colombian man who works in a record store and dreams of going to America and becoming a radio announcer. He does not hold a very high station in life so when he courts his girlfriend Patricia (Marcela Agudelo), her family does not approve. Unfortunately, when Adolfo tries to obtain his tourist visa, his application is rejected because his older brother went to the U.S. and never came back. Depressed but not defeated, Adolfo opts for buying a fake passport and visa, and heads toward the airport with Patricia in tow, and more optimism than common sense.
